Our goal is to help participants build muscle mass and muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance and improve functional ability. Additional goals include reducing the severity of therapy side effects, preventing unwanted weight changes, and improving energy levels and self-esteem. A final goal of the program is to assist participants to develop their own physical fitness program so they can continue to practice a healthy lifestyle, beyond just their recovery.  The program also provides participants with a supportive environment and camaraderie with fellow survivors, YMCA staff, and members.

Classes are hosted Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 AM and 5:30 PM.
